?[edit]

Although the Haaretz article cited in footnote 21 refers to James Hansen as the author of the book Climate Code Red, that book was written by David Spratt (full title CLIMATE CODE RED: THE CASE FOR EMERGENCY ACTION, published by SCRIBE PUBLICATIONS, Melbourne, Australia in 2008). In his 2010 book "Eaarth--Making Life On a Tough New Planet" (spelled with two "a"s deliberately) McKibben describes (pp 206ff) the origins of the 350 movement and refers to "James Hansen's NASA report setting 350 parts per million carbon dioxide as the maximum atmospheric concentration compatible with maintaining the planet..." but does not cite Climate Code Red.Umbrete1066 (talk) 05:48, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

List of messengers.[edit]

Is there any support for the presence of any particular messengers in this article? — Arthur Rubin (talk) 06:53, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

The anon asserts that there is support, because the list of 4 or 5 has been there for about a year; however, I believe there was a consensus that there should be no specific messengers listed unless an external reliable source considered it notable. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 07:00, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
So you didn't find a "historical precedent" of lack-of-consensus ... so you are attempting to make-up one now? 99.181.140.141 (talk) 08:48, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Possible error, re: authorship[edit]

"Later, the continued melting of the polar cap pushed him into starting 350.org, based on Hansen's 2007 book Climate Code Red."

I am pretty sure "Storms of My Grandchildren" is James Hansen's only book.

On Amazon, there is a book entitled: "Climate Code Red: The Case for Emergency Action" by David Spratt and Philip Sutton.

The linked interview (http://www.haaretz.com/350-and-counting-1.8057) does attribute the book to Hansen, but I think it is incorrect.

Indeed. I find nothing to back up the claim in Haaretz and there has been no reply to this objection since July 2012. I have changed to what seems a safe statement. Peter Gulutzan (talk) 23:17, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on 350.org[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected links on 350.org which have been added to the blacklist, either globally or locally. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed or are highly inappropriate for Wikipedia. The addition will be logged at one of these locations: local or global If you believe the specific link should be exempt from the blacklist, you may request that it is white-listed. Alternatively, you may request that the link is removed from or altered on the blacklist locally or globally. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. Please do not remove the tag until the issue is resolved. You may set the invisible parameter to "true" whilst requests to white-list are being processed. Should you require any help with this process, please ask at the help desk.

Update?[edit]

Scanning through the article, I see many references to dates after July 2011, which is (apparently) when this article was slapped with an {Update|inaccurate=yes} template. Is this still relevant? Should the template be removed? - dcljr (talk) 13:57, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
